NEW YORK, Jan. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Kalorama Information, the global market for point of care (POC) urinalysis reached $129 million in 2015. One of the key benefits and market drivers for POC testing – diagnostic testing that is performed at or near the site where the patient is located – is the ability to have rapid results that can be used immediately for patient treatment decisions. Urine specimens are important for certain types of in vitro diagnostic (IVD) testing. Urinalysis can be performed to detect certain metabolic disorders, kidney disease, bladder cancer, urinary tract infections, and other conditions. The healthcare market researcher's report, POC Urinalysis Testing Market, examines the POC urine testing market.

"While overall urinalysis test volumes are growing negligibly in most developed POC markets, increasing test automation provides an ancillary boost to the market through instrument sales," said Bruce Carlson, Publisher of Kalorama Information. "POC users stand to generate revenue by maximizing volume for the low-cost tests."
Urinalysis is already widespread and dipstick urinalysis is the highest volume POC test in the world. Remaining market opportunity for dipstick urinalysis is largely limited in the placement of benchtop or portable dipstick readers. The instruments eliminate user subjectivity and qualitative reading of dipstick parameters while freeing practices and clinics to run significantly greater urinalysis volumes.
POC Urinalysis Testing Market examines the urine strip segment of the global POC professional testing and self-testing markets and the urinalysis segment of the POC professional drugs of abuse testing market, including selected dipstick urinalysis systems, 2014; global POC urine strip testing market analysis: 2012-2019; POC urine strip self-testing market analysis, 2014 and 2019; POC urine test strip professional testing market analysis, 2014 and 2019; and global POC urine strip testing market revenues and market share of leading suppliers, 2014.
Large and small companies are involved in the development and/or marketing of POC urine testing. Leading and innovative competitors are discussed within the report's corporate profiles.
